The â€˜City of Sailsâ€™ Auckland is blessed with two Harbors the Manukau Harbour Tasman sea and the Waitemata Harbour on the Pacific Ocean. New Zealandâ€™s most populated city, Auckland plays a significant role in commerce, education and arts. It also makes for a great holiday destination. From scenic promenades to smaller islands that dot the nearby area, there are numerous fun things to do in Auckland.
Begin your city exploration from the iconic Auckland War Memorial Museum, walk you through New Zealandâ€™s natural and military history and Maori culture. It is home to over one thousand taonga (Maori for treasure) and transports you to an early Maori culture with its life-size artefacts. Waiheke Island is a small island in the Auckland region which provides an escape from the hustle bustle of the city. Waiheke is famous for both its beaches as well as its wine. It makes for a great spot for surfing and snorkelling in the Auckland region. Another notable island near to Auckland is the Rotoroa Island which is wildlife sanctuary with sandy beaches and a museum too. If you want to do something thrilling, head to the Rangitoto Island. It is home to a young volcano and it makes for an amazing spot to go hiking, birdwatching, and Kayaking. Some of the other tourist destinations in Auckland include the Sky tower which gives a 360-degree view of the city. Itâ€™s an unlikely place, but you can go bungee jumping from this 60-story building. Another must visit place in Auckland is the Auckland Domain, which is a city park situated in a volcanic crater. The crater is the aftermath of the blast of Pukekawa Volcano. Auckland Zoo and the Kelly Tarltonâ€™s Sealife Aquarium are a few more amazing tourist spots that should be on your Auckland tour itinerary.
